On July 4th 2018 Prof. Sottilotta  was interviewed by Al Jazeera English on the tensions emerging within Italy's coalition government due to disagreement on how to manage the flow of asylum seekers trying to reach Italy's shores by boat via the central Mediterranean route. While anti-immigration minister of interiors Salvini is successfully monopolizing the attention of the public acting as a de facto prime minister, the Five Star Movement appears to be divided:  its leader Di Maio is officially supporting Salvini's hard line, but other leading figures within the Five Star Movement, especially  Roberto Fico (speaker of the Chamber of Deputies) are expressing opposite views and praising the work of NGOs which are rescuing asylum seekers  in the Mediterranean.

Professor Timothy Joseph Allen, adjunct faculty in the Art History program and professional oil painter, led an international group of artists for a seven-day painting workshop at Castello di Potentino, a medieval castle in Tuscany.

An international jury announced winners of an art competition on UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the residence of the Swiss Ambassador Thomas Kolly on Thursday May 10. Each of the four winners and 25 finalists were given cash prizes, certificates and other gifts.

The jury highly commended “the European cooperation between the Italian conservation experts and the Greek Orthodox Monastery which was undertaken in close consultation with the Egyptian authorities and has resulted in high-quality conservation work on an element of such an outstanding World Heritage Site as the Monastery of Saint Catherine in Sinai. The documentation and quality of the work are exceptional”.
